The Boat Race
Saturday 24th March 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Clare Balding presents live coverage of the men’s and women’s University Boat Races on the River Thames, as Oxford aim to retain the men’s title, and Cambridge the women’s. This is the fourth time that both races will be taking place on the same afternoon and on the same course, and thousands of people will line the course of four miles and 374 yards from Putney to Mortlake in what is one of the longest-established events on the British sporting calendar. With commentary by Andrew Cotter. The women’s race is set to begin at precisely 4.31pm, while the men’s race will start at 5.32pm.
